June 2021

Deloitte in Wales continues with its commitment to promote talent from within and has announced a new partner and two new directors from 1 June 2021.

All based in Cardiff, Shaun Curtis has been promoted to tax partner, with Rob Wallace and Dean Thomas promoted to director in the financial advisory team.

Shaun hails from Pembrokeshire, attending Cardiff University before joining the firm as a graduate in 2007. He currently leads the business tax team in Wales, a team of 55 people, and is national lead of the Entrepreneur and Advisory Group for private client services.

Across the UK, Deloitte promoted 79 people to partner, 19 of whom are from the firm’s regional practices.

Ian Howse, senior partner for Deloitte in Wales, says: “It has never been so important to nurture and develop the talent we have in Wales. It is important for our clients and equally so for our teams as we continue to come out of what has been a challenging year for us all.

“I am thrilled for Shaun, Rob and Dean who have continued to thrive despite adapting to a new way of working whilst continuing to support clients and colleagues. We continue to invest in talent and these promotions are the best example of showcasing, not just the expertise in the region, but the opportunities available within Deloitte.

“From graduate to partner, Shaun in particular is testament to the fact that you do not have to move to achieve your ambitions.”
